Description:

Students participating in this program will function as a traveling press corps. As international correspondents, they will find and pitch stories and report and write them (in English) on deadline for an online magazine created to showcase the course material. Students will also be expected to take photos for their stories, as well as provide video and audio when necessary and appropriate. Topics could include articles related to government, politics, religion, arts, sports, business and lifestyle. The estimated number of students for this program is no fewer than 15, and no more than 20. All the student work – articles to be published in an online magazine – will be “workshopped” vigorously throughout the program, edited and then posted with visuals and media.
